I didn't find anything creepy about this classic animation. The "grampy" character is like a holiday MacGyver to these orphaned children and that satisfies your heart. Plus, I actually feel spirited because of the music and scenery (check out grampy's home made "snow"). I rate this classic second only to Fleischer's "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer". Fun to watch, especially in December.

This version is complete and has better image quality than the other version.

While probably really cool in 1936, it's a lttle creepy today - in a good way. It's a nice, mindless story. Top rating for the just the theme song! It's hypnotic.

Christmas comes but once a year.
Now it's here. Now it's here.
Bringing lots of joy and cheer.
Tra, la, la, la, la!
You and me, and he, and she,
and we are glad because.
Why? Because, because, because,
There is a Santa Claus.
Oh, Christmas comes but once a year.
Now it's here. Now it's here.
Bringing lots of joy and cheer.
Tra, la, la, la, la!

I made a version with closed captions and an interactive trancript. You can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p17kBv8F5I
